    Just got this in today on it's hilarious total transit time of 27 hours from the Netherlands all the over to me. Yes, it was shipped at 7am yesterday and got here faster than most guitars shipped inside the states :lol:

    Finally got it in though, this is an Aristides 060 in their Silverburst Sparkle finish. Words can't describe how nice it is and how killer the finish is, ordered it about 8-9 months ago and it was the instrument I was looking forward to the most.

    Pictures were taken by the amazing Paul Ozz! He managed to catch it on his trip to the factory a few hours before it got shipped to me, super grateful and his shots really show how insane it is. This build also has Aristides' custom Bareknuckle Pickup set and they are incredibly responsive and nice.

    Oof, I'm with Fassbender.

    Do you still have that Holcomb silverburst?

    So ... how does it compare to a "regular" guitar? Do you really need wood?

    HNGD! Looks stupidly good!

    I didn't like the Aristides at all when I first saw them.. but they have grown on me and now I have serious GAS for 070 or an 080 fanfret!

    It's okay to be wrong :lol:

    You confuse me so often with your insane outlook on photography dude :rofl: but both pics are sick.

    Haha I saw you send the question on Facebook as well, I'll let you read it over there!

    They're very nice, I dug the 010 back in the day but didn't have the funds to pull the trigger on one. Especially since they were way more expensive back then, but check them out someday they're really impressive.

    Holy moly. That's the only silverburst I've ever liked! So damn cool with all those sparkles.

    Exactly - reminds me of a monochrome version of the Parker Fly solar flare finish.
